UK and Europe Get Google Play All Access

Roughly three months ago, at Google I/O, Google finally announced its Google Play All Access music service. Though the name was new, we'd been hearing about the company's music streaming plans for months. Unfortunately, the service was U.S.-only at launch. The good news is that Google is finally ready to bring the service to Europe. Google today revealed pricing in sterling and Euros as it launched in its first European countries as well as Australia.

The Music All Access service is now available Australia, Austria, Belgium, France, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, United Kingdom, and the United States. Those in Europe/UK will be able to take advantage of the promotional price of €7.99/£7.99 per month if they sign up for their free trial before September 15. If you wait until after September 15, you'll be paying €9.99/£9.99 per month once your 30-day free trial expires.

All Access users will be able to create special radio stations for songs or artists that they love, as well as browse recommendations or explore music by genre. You can also incorporate your own collection of music, with storage space for 20,000 tracks in the cloud. Google currently doesn't offer any kind of ad-supported free version.

    I think that it's because the music industry in Germany hates the internet.

    As a music streaming service, what are the advantages of this over Pandora?
